2019: Buhari’s WAEC result is fake, Opposition parties claim
Opposition political parties under the aegis of Coalition of United Political Parties have described the sudden release of the confirmation of result by WAEC in favour of President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, as suspicious.
They said that there were indications that the result was hurriedly released to stall the commencement of the suit seeking to disqualify the President from the 2019 election, describing the action as laughable, unbelievable and a desperate effort to mislead the court and shield President Buhari from being disqualified in the 2019 presidential election.
CUPP is made up of about 42 political parties.
The CUPP in a statement issued in Abuja by its National Spokesperson, Ikenga Ugochinyere, called on WAEC to produce the official ledger and booklet containing the scores and records of names of students of the Provincial Secondary School, katsina, now called Government Secondary School.
The spokesperson said WAEC succumbed to what he called “high level pressure to issue out the document which is suspicious and aimed at misleading Nigerians and the court to believe President Buhari sat for the exam when in the actual sense he did not, as there is no evidence to support the assertion.”
He added, “Let Nigerians be reminded that a few days ago, the opposition raised the alarm that there was an ongoing move to tamper with the records of WAEC and pressure the leadership into manufacturing a result for President Buhari.
“Today’s action of WAEC has vindicated our earlier fears and confirmed our stand that WAEC is now competing with Oluwole Market in manufacturing documents.”
